404 Parts & Service Providers:
It is very difficult to find 404 parts consistently from North American suppliers. There are a few foreign and classic car dealers that trade old or NOS parts on eBay or Craigslist and you can find a few compatible replacement parts on amazon or at auto supply stores, but no one has a complete parts catalog at this point in North America. Below is a list of a limited number of North American used 404 parts providers, a list of companies that rebuild 404 parts here, and sources for useful services, restoration and maintenance supplies in North America. Here we also list the best 404 parts and specialty service providers to use in Europe.
As a member of the 404 Club, one is entitled to purchase a large number of 404 NOS, newly manufactured, and used parts at discounted prices. You should join the club for 50 euros and we will help you coordinate an order with the 404 Club from France if you know what you need and are not in a hurry. They do not have everything, but volunteers will often help you find and coordinate orders with commercial vendors and consolidate shipping for you. You can also shop directly for your desired part/s using the following recommended commercial sources below in Europe.
It is relatively easy to order parts from French, UK and German suppliers. Often on eBay, you can find 404 parts from Europe very reasonably, but shipping is often pricey. Colissimo international shipping (www.collissimo.fr ) from the French post office is extremely quick and efficient with tracking and easy customs clearing. In the US, we have never had a problem or had to pay customs duty for parts for personal use. In Canada, customs duty is often charged. One of the things to ask for when ordering parts from EU vendors is to have the Value Added Tax (TVA=20% in France, MwSt=19% in Germany) deducted for delivery to NA. Most suppliers will deduct when asked and it often pays the cost for expensive shipping. For rare parts you can also search the French equivalent of Craigslist called, www.leboncoin.com to find what you need. It is difficult to contact sellers (they often block foreign addresses on this site). When you find what you want on www.leboncoin.com you need to ask a French Club 404 member or a trusted parts supplier such as Gilles Gouret of Alveas (see below) to buy it for you and pay him a supplemental % fee.
North American 404 Parts Suppliers:
Description: A French car parts supplier with many Peugeot, Citroën and Renault model parts. Not alot of 404 parts left, but you can find some.
Vintage Imports Inc Foreign Car Parts: Ebay seller based in Franklin, Ohio carrying many old 404 parts. Website store: http://stores.ebay.com/vintageimportsinc/
Michel (Mike) Aube of G&A Auto Sales and Service: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org / Tel:(613)-535-2048 / Address: 12343 County Road 18, Williamsburg, Ontario K0C 2H0 Canada / Website: http://www.gaauto.ca/pages/about.html

Brian Holm - Peugeot Parts VT: Email: email@example.com Tel: 802-454-7132
Description: Brian had a number of old Peugeot 404 salvage cars and has a few NOS parts left. His supply of 404 parts is limited now, but he has a great deal of Peugeot knowledge and can often refer one to the right place.
European Based 404 Parts Suppliers:
Largest and Most Affordable 404 Parts Shippers to USA/Canada:
Description: Gilles is one of the most honest, competent and helpful 404 parts suppliers. He used to work for Peugeot in Argentina where there are still many 404s on the road. He sources many parts from there and elsewhere and has an excellent knowledge of the 404. He offers a 10% discount for 404 Club members and has been very involved with the club. Gilles often will help group parts from other suppliers and consolidate shipping in one transatlantic order. He has even ordered and negotiated for parts on a french craigslist equivalent called www.leboncoin.com.
Description: Serie04 has own of the largest catalogs of 404 parts and a very slick web site at very economical prices. They also offer used parts at times and will rebuild parts like clutches, brakes, etc. on standard exchange conditions (you send in your old part and they send you rebuild part, but expensive with shipping). Serie04 also deducts the TVA from orders shipped to North America. The only down side with Serie04 is that it is almost 100% internet and email based service and little chance for live conversation. When you create an account on their site and put in a North American address all the prices on site are then adjusted without TVA. They also keep a complete online file of all your past orders in your profile and offer direct tracking on their site. Many people have complained about the customer service on the French club Forum because they cannot contact Thierry directly by phone when they want an answer to a question or there is an issue. That being said, many NA owners have ordered dozens of international shipments and never had a problem.
La Musee Peugeot - Contact: Bruno Garovo email: firstname.lastname@example.org website: http://www.museepeugeot.com/fr/musee-de-laventure-peugeot/peugeot-classic-pieces-de-rechanges.html
Description: The Peugeot Classic department is a parts department associated with the Peugeot Museum. Bruno Garovo is an extremely helpful and responsive director of the parts service. They have an extensive catalog of NOS 404 parts that are very affordable. They have also reproduced some difficult to find parts such as a Kugelfischer injection pump rebuild kit, an injection pump drive belt, an exhaust heat shield, etc. The reproduction parts tend to be more expensive, but great quality. If you join the museum (l'Aventure Peugeot, 23 Euros) you can get a 10% discount on all parts. They also deduct the TVA and shipping is quick and affordable with them. You just need to email Bruno directly and ask him for a specific part or for a complete parts spreadsheet you can search.
Other French Suppliers to Use in order to find Difficult Parts not found at above (May require shipment to french address for consolidated shipping - and unfortunately usually no TVA deduction):
Description: Great catalogue of 404 parts with very competitive prices, but sometimes difficult to navigate because they don’t use original Peugeot parts numbers in their search or reference. They also have stopped shipping directly to the USA because of a lawsuit with a brakes issue. This often requires shipping orders through to another supplier or friend in France and sent on to you.
West Auto Collection: Web site: http://west-auto-collection.com/pieces-auto/
Description: They have a relatively large selection of 404 parts, but are not as economical as La Boutique and Serie04, but sometimes they have certain parts that the others don’t. For example, they carried side parking lights and hydrovac diaphragm and rebuild kits when others didn’t. They will ship to North America.
Depanoto: Web site: http://www.depanoto-boutique.com
Description: Smaller collection of 404 parts, but sometimes they have parts such as molded hoses or wiper reservoirs that other suppliers don’t carry. Never have ordered for direct NA shipping, but Todd has ordered and shipped to a French address for consolidated order shipping.
Melun Auto Passion: http://www.melun-retro-passion.com
Description: Another 404 parts supplier that has a smaller collection of parts and isn’t as consistently affordable as others. The site does offer English translation, but the parts navigation and reference number ID is a little difficult.
TealMaxLion: Ebay Supplier: www.tealmaxlion.com
Contact: Alexandre Dechezelles Email: email@example.com
Description: I have bought many small difficult to find parts from Alexandre. Sometimes a bit more expensive, but easy to find parts and order via email. Shipping is quick and delivery guaranteed via ebay.
UK Based Peugeot Parts Supplier:
Description: Very extensive list of used and some NOS Peugeot parts. Can be more expensive than others, but sometimes they carry items that others don’t because they are in the UK and don’t have same demand on rare parts. Todd found a lock for a glove box and a cold start injector that was not available any where else in France at the time, and Mike found NOS headlight rings for the 404C before they were remanufactured commercially, and front turn indicator lenses for the 404C.
Reliable German Peugeot 404 Sources:
Description: Peter Teuffel is a German Peugeot expert who offers many 404 parts one cannot find anywhere else and ships directly to the USA. He had a large collection of remanufactured chrome headlight rings for Cabriolets and Coupes for example. He speaks English and responds attentively to email and calls. His website is in German, but believe you can translate via Google translate. Peter has also been a great help with the 404 Registry.

Swiss Peugeot 404 Source:
Description: Swiss classic Peugeot part supplier. Website in German, but again can translate site or search via Peugeot parts number. Little more expensive at times with Swiss Franc exchange rate. They accept Paypal. Not a steady go to parts supplier, but again can be used to try and find rare parts. For example, it was the only site recently that carried a Hydrovac vacuum pressure warning switch when searching. Not sure about international shipping.

Kugelfischer Injection Pump Rebuilds & Service:
The definitive place to have an injection pump rebuilt is in Germany at the Koller GmbH in Nürnberg (www.koller.de), but can be very expensive, up to 4000 Euros for a full rebuild. Below are a few other options, including in North America. Also, The Peugeot Museum offers a complete injection pump rebuild kit for approximately 200 Euros if you want to try a rebuild yourself or you have a trusted source locally.

Description: Old Azur was recommended as a quality top provider at a reasonable price by the 404 Club. They seem to be a smaller artisan shop and are less expensive than the Comptoir at 699 Euros, but Todd had a difficult time connecting with them via phone and email and negotiating a TVA deduction, etc. If one has time and can go through someone at the club to order - Old Azur is worth trying.

Great deal and service. http://www.bretagne-plaques.fr/page-46.html
Clutch Release Bearing with Brass Ballbearings & Plate vs Graphite:
Much has been written about the durability of the original graphite infused clutch release bearing vs a modern reproduction with brass plate and ball bearings. Many have paid $120 for the new version in hopes that it will last much longer vs $40 for the conventional graphite reproduction that also have had some problems. Too early to tell, but much has to do with the installation and adjustment of each. For those that want to try the supposedly new and durable ball bearing based release bearing try Retro Roulements.
Exhaust systems in Stainless Steel:
Dutch Classic Exhausts: Contact: Sander May - Website: www.dutchclassicexhausts.com and Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Description: This is a Dutch member of Le Club 404 who offers new stainless steel muffler systems with a lifetime warranty for all 404 models.
